This chatbox is pretty sweet. I'm glad there's a vBulletin-integrated chatbox that has channels.

Is there a way to start with a different channel open, based on the page? As in, instead of always starting in the default "Main" channel, if someone goes to the "Special Chat" custom page, it starts in the "Special" channel.

If not, has anyone had success installing the mod twice? I tried renaming everything and just uploading it all again, but it gave me database errors and I had to restore from a backup. Maybe I just missed something, though.

I can't get this thing to stop being French. I used a fresh install option and followed instructions but it is still in french. The instructions are pretty vague too.

Ended up uninstalling it. Perhaps you have better directions if I installed it wrong but I do not believe I did.

Did you follow the Readme file? Step 4 is installing the language pack.

You need to load the english.lang file and use overwrite, all your french will turn to English!

One warning to users. Read the instructions carefully. If you simply uninstall the product without first deleting the files on your server you WILL corrupt your database as far as usergroup functionality goes. If you did this accidentally simply reinstall the product then uninstall properly per the instructions.

I could not get this chatbox to work for me at all and spent the past hour wasting my time. Installed the simple VSa instead. Worked immediately.

Reading the instructions is crucial to the installation of any modification. You should always make sure to review them before doing an install/uninstall. Please note that installing the language pack is not what corrupted your database. It was to be done as step 4 of the fresh installation process.
